Elan Gray, Graphic Designer

Q: Why did you want to work for AMW Site Designs?

Q: Why did you want to work for AMW Site Designs?

A: As a freelance graphic designer I’m always ready to deal with clients and their crazy deadlines to get the job completed when they need it. Also, it’s about understanding what clients want from the inception so that I can create someone that’s unique to them and their business.

Greg Taylor, Web Designer

Q: Why did you want to work for AMW Site Designs?

A: I got my web design/developer start by coding and designing custom myspace musician pages in 2007. I learned Flash and basic CSS from there on and by 2008-2009, I was coding advanced Actionscript flash websites for clients. Between 2009-2011, I worked mostly on HTML/CSS portfolio sites. I designed and developed the Bootstrap/Wordpress website of my full-time gig from 2011 to present day. I have over 10 years experience in Web Design/Development in the fields of Flash,HTML5, CSS3, and some JQuery. I have over 15 years experience in the Adobe Creative Suite, primarily Photoshop, Dreamweaver, After Effects, Premiere and InDesign. I greatly enjoy graphic design but I prefer to convert existing designs and convert them to code. I enjoy the process of seeing still images come to life.

Imani Augustus, Web Designer

Q: Why did you want to work for AMW Site Designs?

A: I am the Outreach Director and Media Design Manager for the Capitol Hill Community Service Association, which is a staff association for individuals who work on Capitol Hill. I also am the Team Leader and Communications Director for the Service Year Alliance DC Community. In these roles, I have worked on several digital projects creating social media and web content. I’ve also created digital content for a US Senate race and a gubernatorial race. I’ve worked with WordPress in college, created a Wix mockup last year, and coded a mockup portfolio website with HTML and CSS from scratch and hosted on Github. I’m currently studying the Front End Web Development coursework at Team Treehouse.
